    Fill in the blank

    I have 45x40 floor space behind my 2nd row. 45" wheel well to well an 40" from back of 2nd row seat to rear gate. I kno I need to be a few inches from rear gate, so I figure 45x34 an I want to go 15" high. So is 45x34x15 rite or is there sum special ratio that needs to be used? I most likely will have my box built, it's jus 3-4 months down the way. An if I can get enough info by then I may make an attempt my self.

    you need to pick a sub/s then figure out what size box they ( subs ) need.

    Re: Fill in the blank

    big scott's got the right idea. You build the box around the sub - at least it'd be easier to make a match that way. Figure out what subs you want, then figure out how much volume they each need for the type of enclosure you want to build, then build the box. There's no magic ratio, so long as it's not ten feet long by six inches high or something like that you should be good.



    My Setup:
    • Head Unit: Kenwood KDC-BT555U
    • Speakers: 4 Kenwood KFC-P709PS components on a Rockford Fosgate Punch P400.4, 50W+ RMS @ 4Ω to each
    • Subwoofers: 2 Rockford Fosgate Punch HE2 12"s in a custom 2.5ft³ sealed enclosure on a Kenwood KAC-9103D, 500W RMS @ 4Ω to the pair

    That sounds right, but I don't run massive boxes like that, so someone's should confirm that number.

    I think 6 would be the minimum.usually the same width as your port from what I've seen.

    I had a GMC Jimmy and 6" was the magical number for me. best way to find out is trial and error. or shoot for 6" and go from there.

    as far as your box dimensions, that is up to the subs and the amount of power to them. for 2 15s, id shoot for 6.5-8cuft if it was me.

    you have to factor in the port displacement and the subs displacement into your net box size. bigger could be better with the kicker amp, but with the sq2200, you are going to want to be a tad smaller to control the subs better.
